What’s art without sacrifice? That’s what a dozen gifted ballet dancers, who have been admitted to the esteemed American Ballet Academy, are about to find out. From Nicholas Hytner, the acclaimed director of The Madness of King George comes Center Stage, a drama about a tight-knit group of dancers who must sacrifice personal pleasures and train religiously in preparation for a recital to determine which of them will be asked to join the very select and prestigious American Ballet Academy. The film features a talented ensemble of real-life professional dancers, including Amanda Schull, Zoë Saldana, Ethan Stiefel, Sascha Radetsky and Shakiem Evans, along with veteran actors Peter Gallagher (sex, lies and videotape), Debra Monk (NYPD Blue), Eion Bailey (Fight Club) and Donna Murphy (The Astronaut’s Wife).
